[jcifs] Retrieving AD account password using jCIFS

We have a business requirement to delegate the Windows credentials from
AD domain to Unix Server. I know kerberos is an option, but we are using
apache FTP library to retrieve the Files from Unix File Server. Apache
FTP API is limited to sending username and password and not a kerberos
ticket. I was wondering if JCIFS provides a mechanism to retrieve User
password from domain and can be used to authenticate to Unix File
Server. Any thoughts on this will be greatly appreciated.
